The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, known as Zelda no Densetsu: Yume o Miru Shima (Japanese: ゼルダの伝説 夢をみる島?, lit. The Legend of Zelda: Dream Island) in Japan, is a 1993 action-adventure video game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis & Development and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy. It is the fourth installment in the The Legend of Zelda series, and the first for a handheld game console.
Link’s Awakening began as a port of the Super NES title The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, developed after-hours by Nintendo staff. It grew into an original project under the direction of Takashi Tezuka, with a story and script created by Yoshiaki Koizumi and Kensuke Tanabe. It is one of the few Zelda games not to take place in the land of Hyrule, and does not feature Princess Zelda or the Triforce relic. Instead, protagonist Link begins the game stranded on Koholint Island, a place guarded by a creature called the Wind Fish. Assuming the role of Link, the player fights monsters and solves puzzles while searching for eight musical instruments that will awaken the sleeping Wind Fish and allow him to escape from the island.
Link’s Awakening was critically and commercially successful. Critics praised the game’s depth and number of features; complaints focused on its control scheme and monochrome graphics. An updated re-release titled The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX, known in Japan as Zelda no Densetsu: Yume o Miru Shima DX, was released for the Game Boy Color in 1998 featuring color graphics, compatibility with the Game Boy Printer, and an exclusive color-based dungeon. Together, the two versions of the game have sold more than six million units worldwide, and have appeared on multiple game publications’ lists of the best games of all time.
Like most games in The Legend of Zelda series, Link’s Awakening is an action-adventure game focused on exploration and combat. The majority of the game takes place from an overhead perspective. The player traverses the overworld of Koholint Island while fighting monsters and exploring underground dungeons. Dungeons steadily become larger and more difficult, and feature “Nightmare” boss characters that the player must defeat, taking different forms in each dungeon, and getting harder to defeat each time. Success earns the player heart containers, which increase the amount of damage the player character can survive; when all of the player’s heart containers have been emptied, the game restarts at the last doorway entered by the character. Defeating a Nightmare also earns the player one of the eight instruments necessary to complete the game.
Link’s Awakening was the first overhead-perspective Zelda game to allow Link to jump; this enables sidescrolling sequences similar to those in the earlier Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.Players can expand their abilities with items, which are discovered in dungeons and through character interactions. Certain items grant access to previously inaccessible areas, and are needed to enter and complete dungeons. The player may steal items from the game’s shop, but doing so changes the player character’s name to “THIEF” for the rest of the game and causes the shopkeeper to knock out the character upon re-entry of the shop

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an upcoming action-adventure video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U video game consoles. It is the 19th main installment in the The Legend of Zelda series and the first original game in the series developed with an HD resolution. The story is set in Hyrule and follows amnesiac protagonist Link, who awakens from a 100-year slumber to a mysterious voice that guides him to defeat Calamity Ganon.
The title’s gameplay and mechanics constitute a departure from the series’ conventions, featuring an advanced physics engine, an open-world environment, voice acting, and the ability to play through the game’s dungeons in any order. The game was initially planned for release as a Wii U exclusive in 2015. After being delayed multiple times, it is set for release worldwide on 3 March 2017. It will be a launch title for the Switch.
